Quinlan School of Business – Loyola University

History

Founded in 1922, Loyola University Quinlan School of Business is the only Jesuit business school in Chicago. In 2012, the school was renamed for alum Michael R. Quinlan, former chairman and CEO of McDonald’s Corp., and former chairman of Loyola’s Board of Trustees, following his $40 million gift.

The school is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).
